Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) is a composite material made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibres. The fibres are usually glass, carbon, aramid, or basalt.
FRP/GRP resists a wide range of chemicals and temperatures. Several resin systems suitable for specific corrosion conditions are available.
Glass fibre is available as chopped Strand Mat, Woven Roving, Roving and surface veils.
A simple fabrication method namely hand layup is still the most preferred method for manufacturing for chemical plants equipment.
Filament winding is done wherever additional load bearing requirement can be economically met.
Dual laminates are more in use now and are FRP equipment thermoplastic corrosion resistant process face of PP, PVC, ECTFE, FEP, PVDF provide a combination of excellent chemical resistance of thermoplastics and moderate mechanical properties of FRP.
